  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 can (15 1/2 oz.) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, thinly sliced
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic cloves and cook, while stirring, until onion begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garbanzo beans and diced tomatoes. Simmer until thickened but still saucy, about 6 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, season with salt and pepper, stir in the basil, spoon in to serving bowls, and enjoy.

Easy and inexpensive. Goes great as a salad or soup topper or snack.



Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Lightly coat a roasting pan with olive oil and spread garbanzo beans in the bottom. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, toss to coat and let stand for 15 minutes.

Sprinkle with seasoning mixture and shake pan to coat beans again.

Roast on bottom rack of oven shaking pan about every 15 minutes until browned and crunchy. It takes about 35 to 50 minutes to roast. Cool to obtain the crunchiness and store in an airtight container.

Here are some spice combination ideas:

For a completely different flavor experience you can switch the parsley with 1/4 cup of fresh chopped cilantro and lime juice for the lemon juice instead.
